The Most Happieness Countries

The Most Happieness Countries

(ePharmaNews) – "If you ever find happiness by hunting for it, you will find it, as the old woman did her lost spectacles, safe on her own nose all the time." A famous quotes by Josh Billings, The first-ever World Happiness Report aimed to search for the happiest countries and the factors that improve human satisfaction.

This report, from the Earth Institute, was released Monday in time for the UN’s Conference on Happiness, and it shows that the world’s happiest countries are all in Denmark, Finland, in that order, and Togo was the last.

As among the Arab countries, UAE was the first, placed the 17th globally, followed by Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, while Jordan was in 54th, Libya 81st, Egypt 102nd and Syria 106th.The least "happy" Arab countries were Palestine, Yemen and Sudan.

While the happiest countries tend to be wealthy, and the poorest tend to be the least happy, the report has quickly mentioned that happiness is not just about money.
“Political freedom, strong social networks and an absence of corruption are together more important than income in explaining well-being differences between the top and bottom countries,” the report states. “At the individual level, good mental and physical health, someone to count on, job security and stable families are crucial.”

The report examined a number of factors to determine their link with happiness such as income, employment, the role of society and government, values, religion and some personal factors such as health, mental and physical health, family, educational qualifications, gender and age. The mental health is the most essential of these factors; however the most satisfaction of life was among people who are forty to fifty, and women in developed countries are happier than men.

Perhaps one of the most important factors affecting happiness is work, which not only provides income, but also gives the meaning of existence. The study also proved that the saying "you cannot buy happiness" is wrong, income is one of the factors that increases happiness according to the report but it is not the most important, "happiness related to the quality of human relations more than income" says the report author, and he added
“Stable family life and enduring marriages are important for the happiness of parents and children.”
As several of other factors innovation, freedom, justice, equality and a sense of security play an important role as well.

The report indicates that on average, the world has become a little happier in the last 30 years (by 0.14 times) and that “reflects a new worldwide demand for more attention to happiness and absence of misery as criteria for government policy,” the authors state.
Finally it seems that the happiness is correlated with countries' development, and that developed countries help their citizens to be happy, who in turn become more productive and develop their countries more.
